“2018 & New Beginnings”


“Hope smiles from the threshold of the year to come, whispering, “It will be happier” – Alfred Lord Tennyson

Another year culminates. This time, New Year’s Eve is a tad bit different from the past. I have exchanged the usual fanfare for a quiet night in with the family – Seated around the seldom-used dining table, exchanges over pizza in the cold weather. Reminiscing about 2017 has been interesting.

This year has brought with it, some major changes in life and outlook. New challenges were embarked upon, friends came and went, life went by in the blink of an eye. ‘Change‘ was the only constant, hence the relatively downplayed food and adventures. More often than not, inner battles raged when faced with crossroads and choices of taking the easier safe route or one with unbridled potential. The former, floated through but choosing the latter, has given me a completely new meaning. I have learned many lessons along the way, for which I am grateful.

The key lies within you, or so they said and I tried believing in; but where the wind blew me, I took it in stride – high heels in tow. Never was I as unsure of the unknown, but standing up and for, what I believed in, was truly rewarding.

This year has seen many highs and personal accomplishments. The main: being a step forward to a childhood dream. I shall let time tell this tale, but for now, I reckon a glass of Moet, shall keep me company amidst all the tumbles.

On the Angel’s Escapades’ front, a fresh beginning awaits, as a refurbished site will be up in the New Year. Feedback on what you would like to see is welcome – Head to the contact tab to share your thoughts.

More details will be up soon as I get closer to finalising details. I am already excited at the thought of exploring opportunities!!!

For now, “Get up, Dress up & Show up” to what awaits you. The possibilities ahead are endless. Let us make 2018 our best year yet to live, laugh, love & learn!

“Let us welcome the new year, full of things that never were.” —

Rainer Maria Rilke

Best wishes & May success be in your favour!
